Applied Futures Experiment

At our March 1st meetup we explored some code I'm using to generate large on-demand PDF reports. I demonstrated how the current consecutively executed mechanisms for pulling all the data needed to draw the charts within a specific report are painfully slow and we looked at how Scala's concurrent processing capabilities might allow us to address that pain by leveraging a multi-core/CPU system.

I'm opening this thread for followup to that discussion.

As an update / teaser on this front - I've successfully integrated Scala Futures into this business logic and captured some before/after benchmarks. I've also implemented an alternative solution using straight java.util.concurrent support for a comparison.

I'm leveraging Spring to facilitate both solutions and will be walking through these at our next meetup.
